Complaining and accusations- never answers. You need to run for first selectman so we can see howRead Mores mart you are

Almost as many folks signed your petition as voted for Marks.

FYI I'm new to Trumbull so I didn't vote anyone into office. Rather than attacking, I'm attemptingRead Moret o get additional signatures to a petition that *could* impact whether those funds get returned. This shouldn't be about red v blue - but I get that apparently that IS the root of Trumbull - this is about education.

there are way too many stupid drivers on the road today that don't even signal or come to aRead Morecomplete stop BEFORE making a right turn on red. They also get out of a line to get ahead then try and get back in line near the beginning so they dont have to wait. ultimately some idiot will let them in thus enabling them to continue this type of crap. They must think they're better than anyone els

I pass that exit from Trumbull Center every day and 1/2 the time someone is making a left turn onto Read MoreWPR. I wag my finger and point to the sign...they wag a finger back.

Shouldn't we be more worried about real problems going on with in the town? I would like to takeRead Morethi s opportunity to talk about the serious J-Walking problem in this town. We really need to start having police officers patrolling all crosswalks to ensure that we have nobody walking outside of a crosswalk! This is a serious issue. Trumbull Patch, maybe you could go take a picture of the actual scene in question, or just use a generic image that has a palm tree in it, well done!

Bravo, John McKinney!! Every raise in minimum wage means 500,000 jobs lost . . . This is dangerousRead Morel egislation. It's pandering legislation, that's all it is.
D V March 27, 2014 at 07:44 PM
I tend to agree that the minimum-wage hike is just as much "feel good" (depending, ofRead Morecour se, on your perspective) as whatever else its proponents may claim. But half a million jobs lost as a result of every hike? Not likely - I'd like to see the source for that stat. What's more likely is that DiNardo is pandering to gender feminists and their dupes who insist that the less-than-10% disproportion in the male-to-female ratio among minimum-wage earners is due to some mythical "War on Women."

I don't think there are 500,000 jobs in all of CT.

Judy W., I wish you every success in your search!! I have worn your shoes . . . A few years ago IRead Mores earched and found a (full) birth sister and my birth mother. It has meant the world to me to know my parents' names and to speak with my mother and my sister. (My birth sister and I actually went to grammar school together!) BTW, the CT. Legislature voted 24-1 this week in the Public Health Committee to approve open access to adult adoptee birthparent health records and original birth certificates. The legislation goes forward. Judy W., I sincerely wish you every success in your search! Perhaps, in time, you will write again with the story of your reunion. All the very best and Godspeed. Carol Hudak Trumbull

I sent the following letter to State senator Anthony Musto: Anthony, thank you for all of the Read Morework that you have done to get this bill through the Public Health Committee. Now on to the grand stage. I stand behind my adopted friends who have dreamed of a bill like this for a long time. Now is the time to act for them, not for the professionals who have kept this bottled up for years. It is important, in my judgment, in this day and age of medical and genealogical science for adoptees to have more accurate information of their medical histories. Not just a greater opportunity to throw stones at their birth parents, as some fear. Paul G. Littlefield Trumbull CT
Carol Hudak March 28, 2014 at 03:05 PM
Paul, Thank You!! Sen. Musto has been a strong supporter of adult adoptee access to original birth Read Morecertificates and parental health information. -- Records were open until 1974, when a legislator tacked the closure onto a bill. It never received a public hearing, but was passed into law when the bill passed into law. Thank you, Sen. Musto, for listening, and giving CT. adult adoptees your consistent support.
Pam Georgas March 25, 2014 at 07:26 AM
Thank you Anthony for coming on here and explaining. I am surprised to hear that only one part ofRead Moreth e issue is being looked at. A comprehensive solution needs to be developed for the entire stretch, taking into consideration all intersecting roads in that area and the trail crossing I live on Broadway, so the congestion has directly effected our neighborhood as well, getting in and out of either end of Broadway has become increasingly more difficult.

I frequently use both intersections, but I agree with the writer who is equally concerned about aRead Moreli ght for the Daniels Farm/Strobel intersection. There have been numerous accidents here over the years, long waits for people trying to enter Daniels Farm Rd. during rush hours, and on school days we bear the cost of having police manage traffic at this intersection. I'd propose a stoplight for especially busy times, switching to a blinking light at others.
Matt Broder March 25, 2014 at 04:46 PM
Wow! There goes Anthony Musto, "Gettin' 'er Done"!

Dave I'm surprised with the amount of time that you spend harassing people on Patch that you don'tRead Morer un for public office

Maybe you whiners can get elected and actually influence some real change, instead of being PTARead Morelack eys

I don't have any children in the school system anymore, but I support Tracey and the work of theRead MorePTA . Their objectives are important to Trumbull. From their by laws; a. to promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship. b. to raise the standards of home life. c. to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth. d. to bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth. e. to develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education. Our elected officials should be authentic in their own leadership style, but compassionate to others.
